Why Krav Maga?

Krav Maga is the no nonsense self defence system used by the Israeli Forces and taught to instructors, SWAT teams, security forces, military units and civilians all over the world. Learn how to defend yourself on the ground, anti rape techniques, cash point robbery, muggings, multiple attackers, edged weapon attacks (knives, bottles, etc...) and gun threats.

It is a reality based system that has been developed in response to real life situations. This realistic self defence system that teaches valuable survival strategies including awareness tactics, avoidance techniques, negotiation skills and realistic self defence techniques. Krav Maga's no nonsense approach to self defence has seen it used in many modern action movies like James Bond, the Bourne films and Taken.


Most traditional martial art system are based on set moves that were developed hundreds of years ago. Now try to improve and invent techniques to bring them into the 21st Century. Kata's, Form's and Pattern's are fine to be practiced regularly to improve your technique and fitness but how practical are they in an encounter in a pub or nightclub, a quiet car park or local shops. Krav Maga is designed for these real world environments where a situation can turn bad very quickly.

Other martial art systems are sport based and focus on one to one combat, a rare occurrence in a street encounter. Krav Maga is different in that participants are trained from the very start to be aware of their environment and other potential attackers.

In a modern day violent street attack we have to deal with attackers who have no interest in a fair fight. They will use deception so you don't know who you are fighting. They will use dialogue to distract and confuse you before they destroy you. They wont hesitate to use weapons or multiple attacker's, anything to get the job done. These are the types of reality based attacks that are dealt with in the Krav Maga system.

Krav Maga is simple to learn and easy to retain. The techniques work off natural reactions that make things much quicker and easier to learn as they are already within you. In extremely stressful situations you will not remember and execute any complicated martial arts techniques. Krav Maga has been tried and tested repeatedly in battle situations across the globe and has been proved to be highly successful.
